RealChat is a chat server software that helps website owners add live chat to their website. RealChat combines a high performance Java chat server with a lightweight Ajax chat client. You get tabbed chat, private rooms, customizable appearance, web-based configuration, and more!
To use RealChat, you need a dedicated server or an unrestricted shell account on a shared machine. Free web hosting services, or web-only hosting, won’t work. RealChat on a shared server will fit the needs of most sites. However if you expect hundreds to thousands of users at a time (concurrent users) it would be better to go for a dedicated server.
RealChat supports seamless integration with any member database. Your registered members will be able to chat using their unique user names with no problem. Free plug-ins and integration instructions are available for phpBB, IP.Board, vBulletin and more!
This can be done with the help of the RealChat Scripting API. You can show your visitors who is online via an ASP or PHP page before they enter the chat.
You have total control over the user interface - layout, color theme, etc. A variety of color themes are bundled free-of-charge. Use the visual theme editor, included with RealChat Control Center, to create your own customized themes that perfectly match your web site!
Take a look at the Client section of the RealChat Control Center. It will give you an in-depth look at exactly what is offered.
Please take a look at the Access Control section of the docs.
Using a personal HTTP filtering proxy such as Avast WebShield, Proxomitron, WebWasher may affect the way RealChat client communicates with the server. Users should avoid using filtering proxy for the host where RealChat is installed.
